It is with immeasurable sadness that we announce that author Sir Terry Pratchett has died at the age of 66.

He made my early school years better tenfold. I was privileged enough to meet him once and he was as warm and as funny as one would expect. RIP Terry, hope the chap in the robes was as pleasant as you insisted he was.

I had to take a moment when I heard the news. I've been reading Terry Pratchett's works for a very long time, longer than I knew. I'd read some of his sci-fi and I read Strata before, some time later, I discovered the Discworld via a copy of Mort that I'd bought at a paperback trader. 

He's been a very important part of my life as well as my attitudes towards what I consider good writing. I'm going to miss him a lot.

this is a live interview from later that day with Neil Gaiman. It was supposed to be a general discussion but it rapidly evolves into a frank talk about a man and his good friend and his memories of him.

The Unspeakable Vault (Of Doom) has posted a tribute to Sir Pterry, as well:

That's official: Fantasy had a terrible year. After the loss of Giger, Moebius, Nimoy, Terry Pratchett passed away. There are so many excellent tributes done all around the internet, I'll make this one rather short, even though the strip took forever to be completed. I've already done a serie of cross-over with the Discworld characters, so I've left Rincewind or the Luggage, to focus more on Pratchett's direct hommage to Lovecraft - from the first DW book, with Bel-Shamharoth's Temple, to the very lovecraftian "Moving Pictures". Pratchett's fans will recognize some of the quickly described entities to be found in the Dungeon Dimensions... I've re-used Death, because it's Death - and I needed to make a call (the asterisk) to this strip. Thanks to Booby D. for prompt correction and the Half-Brick Hint!

So long, Sir and thanks for the books!

One of the fans on the Discworld subreddit is compiling "a Character Traits system inspired by Discworld for use with the Pathfinder tabletop system", which is worth a look.
